Happy birthday to Gina, Diana at the Patch and Peter at Hunters. I missed all your birthday parties, but, as always, Nightspots was there with a camera.

+++

Someone asked me the other day how many photographers we had here at Nightspots. Last count it was 11-ish. I receive 300-400 photos a week and pick out the ones I like. So now you know.

+++

Even the dead celebrated July 4th at Annex 3. The ashes of Itzaak sparkled in a patriotic frenzy (see picture in Nightspots). There's a reason why Annex 3 is known as a party bar; what other bar in town puts a drag queen's ashes on stage to lip-synch a song. The Annex 3 crowd are totally fucked up and I love them for it.

THE MOST FUN A GUY CAN HAVE IN A LADY'S POWDER ROOM …

The Lady's Powder Room in question would be the one at Touche. I often take people into the women's bathroom there to take photos; the light is excellent.

I managed to get Craig from Madrigals, Monique Green and Eio in there for a mini-photo-shoot …

… let's just say that none of those three will ever be President of the United States of America and leave it at that.

+++

Spin, Berlin and Neo are the easiest places to take pictures because everyone looks so fabulous!! As graysong would say: 'Oh, this is an embarrassment of riches.'

And to the young person in another bar who suggested I was too old to be going in these clubs …

Honey, I know I'm too old to be going in these clubs. I just take photos and record what's happening for Nightspots…

… I'm not so delusional that I think I 'belong' there.

+++

Talking of graysong, he recently did a Nightspots cover shoot of Megan and Darren from Jackhammer and I've just seen the photos. Oh my God!! The perfect models …

+++

I went to see HMS Pinafore at the Bailiwick. That was a fun show, like it wasn't camp enough already. Maybe the sailor with the patch could transfer to Naked Boys Singing …

Hot Tips: The Barony of Chicago are sponsoring an outing to the Bristol Renaissance Faire on Sunday, Aug. 3. The motor coach will depart at noon from the Annex 3, 3160 N Clark and return at at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $40, and include transportation to and from the fairgrounds, admission, and refreshments on board the motor coach. Tickets are available from all Board members or by contacting the Barony at 773-334-3296 or at barony_of_chicago@yahoo.com . Proceeds from the event will benefit the Reign Two Charities.

Over the weekend of July 18-20 there are two fabulous celebrations. It's InnExile's 16th anniversary weekend, and also Clark's on Clark's 15th anniversary—their big party is on Sunday night. (Like Clark's isn't a party every fucking weekend.)

I don't know what Kelly at Inn Exile is cooking up for their celebration, but that bar can get WILD, let me tell you!! And there's a parking lot opposite the bar.

On July 18 at the Edge, my friend the gorgeous Viviana Mendez presents The Many Faces of Viviana.
